The World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta was where I chose to visit for my manufacturing tour project. My time at the museum / facility was very enjoyable; I learned a lot about Coke products and how they are made.

Robots and machines perform all other tasks with the help of strong technological integration. The company now uses...
